What is Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin Cash is a cryptocurrency supporting electronic payments.

Created in 2017, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is a blockchain-based cryptocurrency. It comes from a hard fork of Bitcoin.

This cryptocurrency allows the validation of more transactions inside one block in an effort to support electronic payments. Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash can handle more transactions per second with lower fees, an issue faced by users of the Bitcoin network.
